Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 7: Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University, Rajouri, organised an interactive session of the students with Parvez Ahmed, J&K Bank Chairman and CEO in the university auditorium today. The topic of the session revolved around various challenges and issues faced by 21st century business leaders. Vice Chancellor Prof. Javed Musarrat, Dean Academic Affairs Prof. Iqbal Parvez, Registrar Dr. Ashfaq, Deans & Directors of various schools of the university, faculty members and administrative staff of the University were present during the session.
"We are living in the most uncertain times of modern history when the only thing constant is Change. The societal and business landscape is also in a state of flux and institutions and corporates which will not adapt to the dynamics of times are unlikely to exist. It is one of the greatest points of inflexion in the history. The three largest forces of Technology, Globalisation and Climate change are accelerating at once. As a result many aspects of our society, workplaces and geopolitics are being reshaped and need to be re-imagined," said the J&K Bank Chairman & CEO in his address.
"If we are to solve the most pressing issues of our time be it the climate change, conservation of resources, inclusivity of society and tolerance, we need to tap into the dynamism of youth movements and young social entrepreneurs, for they have the potential to disrupt inertia and be the most creative forces for social change. We need to empower youth to drive social progress in the country through new and innovative projects," asserted Parvez Ahmed.
He added, "The 21st century offers more room to take risks and think out of the box to deliver well. Now is the time for Business Leaders to think the unthinkable."
He stressed upon the need for every sector to embrace technology and develop a habit of knowledge updation through constant learning and unlearning which is going to be the key differentiator for the leader in the current times to give the right direction to the businesses and seizing opportunities to be future-ready and relevant.
He further added that the motivation of current generation is different and to retain such talent requires unique incentivization and a sense of giving back to the society through businesses.
In a brief question answer session with the students, he also discussed a wide spectrum of topics besides the leadership attributes of contemporary leaders with focus on collaboration, creativity and fostering culture of innovation while demonstrating high emotional intelligence and optimism.
The Dean Academic Affairs Prof. Iqbal Parvez during his welcome address apprised about the awards and accolades received by the University in recent times. He described the visit of the Chairman JK Bank as a momentous occasion being the first such visit by an industry leader for motivating the students of the university.
